Re-reading this maybe I was not clear enough:
_ The syslinux stuff and a kernel are on on USB stick A.
_ The root partition of the system we want to boot is
on another USB stick (USB stick B).
Among the conditions I forgot to mention that the arch of the
kernel in USB stick A should be the same as that of the system
in USB stick B. (64/64 or 32/32).
